    The Smoking and BBQ thread

    Thanks guys, I think I can get hold of an ice box. I'll plan to kick it off at midnight tonight and then get up at 6 to top up the coals. Will keep you updated!

    The Smoking and BBQ thread

    This Saturday I've got 25 people coming round at approx 2pm and I need to have pulled pork ready to eat about then.... So, I'm thinking, I can get a whole pork shoulder from the butchers and get them to cut it so I've got a large butt and part of the picnic, say 2/3 of a shoulder. Do you think that would do enough for pork baps for 20 - 25? I've got a Weber so I doubt I'd get a whole shoulder on. Secondly, I'm thinking of starting it at midnight on Friday and then pulling it off at about 12:30pm to rest while I cook the other stuff. Do you think that's too long or should it be okay as long as I keep the temps nice and low, say 135C? I'd normally cook it for 8 or 9 hours but then I'd need to start it at 3 in the morning which I'm not overly keen to do, and I don't think the neighbours would be too impressed with either. Finally, if I wanted to rest it for say 2 hours, is that safe or would I be better to keep it wrapped and warm in the oven while I do all the burgers, sausages etc?

    One of the few players we've got who's truly passionate about United, and they let him leave.

    Thanks @Shimmyhill yep definitely hoping to keep it pink! Will skip the foil then. I ended up getting two medium sized legs of lamb. I have the Weber premium with the trays either side, so figured I can cook the legs in the middle and then give them a quick blast at the end over the coals if they need a bit of colour. I do have a meat thermometer, what temp do you think for pink?

    Anyone done leg of lamb on a Weber? I need to do lamb for 9 people on Sunday. I'm thinking I won't be able to get a shoulder joint big enough for 9, but two legs should be fine. Sounds like a quick sear and then indirect for 1h 30 to 1h 45 is the recommended method, just wondered if anyone has tried it. I'm wondering whether to sear then wrap in foil to stop it drying out too much?

    Cantona at 2:25 was just outrageous.

    The Beer Thread

    I was on holiday a few weeks ago in the Mumbles, Gower and stumbled across a great little pub called the Mumbles Alehouse: https://www.facebook.com/mumblesalehouse They had a nice hoppy IPA on called Independence from the Bristol Beer Factory: https://www.bristolbeerfactory.co.uk/independence/ The pub is well worth a visit if you're in the area, and the beer is definitely worth sampling if you see it around.

    I of the Mourning should be on there and also Age of innocence. I saw them on the Machina tour and I of the Mourning was utterly brilliant live.

    Liverpool Football Club Thread

    United fan here, I genuinely felt sorry for Liverpool tonight. I think you needed to score in that first 30 mins when you were dominating. Regarding Ramos, I think he went in hard on Salah to try and rough him up a bit, not genuinely thinking he would put him out of the game. I doubt he was unhappy at the eventual outcome though, the guy is a prize knob. And Karius, I think the second mistake only happened because of the first one. Had he not had the first slip up he probably would have just punched it away, but that first error was playing on his mind, and he fluffed it.

    I did turkey on the BBQ this year, with a dry brine beforehand. Went really well, better than my previous standard oven attempts. Tried to maintain temps around 350- 375F, took about 3hrs 20mins for a 6kg bird.

    Nintendo Switch

    I'm surprised how many of you have physical versions of the big first party games like Mario and Zelda. I would have thought it would be the other way round, as they're the ones you'll be playing most, and won't want to be swapping cartridges all the time. Is there a reason to go physical that I'm missing?

    I see Argos have some of the Switch bags/cases on sale, anyone used any of these and would recommend? Or is there a forum favourite official/Hori one? http://www.argos.co.uk/search/shop-all-technology-black-friday-deals-at-argos/category:50000327/
